In 1984 my parents Eric and Janet Stringer started Lawnswood Pet Cremation & Cemetery after finding that there was no easily affordable option for pet owners who wanted their family members treated with dignity after death.
When dad made the decision to retire at the end of 2001, my wife Madeleine and I decided to continue the service. In 2002 we built a new Small Pet Crematorium at Lawnswood and then in 2008 completed a Large Animal / Horse Crematorium.
Wally the Golden Labrador joined our family being adopted from the RSPCA after our previous black Lab ‘Cookie Monster’ had to be put to sleep after 13 years following a back injury. Cookie had been with us since the day Madeleine and I met and her loss left a huge hole in our family.
Luna the rescue kitten has also come into our family recently and with her larger than life personality is challenging Wally for ‘Top Dog’ status in the household.
We hope you won’t need us for a long time, but at least you know that there is someone you can trust to help you when the time comes.
